I love the way you decorated your tank. It looks very natural and the light grey rocks and substrate pair will your betta's black very well.
Thank you so much for the compliment. All of my tanks look as natural as possible. My African Cichlid tank took four months to construct and has sheets of slate siliconed up the entire back. The fun fact about this particular betta tank is that I purchased the tank for less then half the shelf price due to a very small scratch on the side, the plants were all but dead so I got them for a steal, the betta was on sale, the sand is " finishing pavers sand " from Home Depot (I bought 10 bags of it 5 or 6 years ago), and I picked the big rocks up out of the yard. We modified the filter outtake because it was too strong which cost 4.67. So total I have maybe 30 bucks invested.
Just for fun, this is my African Cichlid tank
